How do I set up a printer, not on the lists, in Cura 2.1.2

Recommended Posts

First, Thanks for the reply.

Second, I found some info regarding the .json file, and attempted editing one last night, but it doesn't show up in the list to select, after a reboot. I used the dual_extrusion_printer.json as a basefile, and edited it in notepad. Certainly not as easy a layout as is described. Any assistance in making this any easier? I'm more than willing to hack away at this...

I have a 3DPrinterworks Creatorbot 3D Pro SII printer.

Thanks again.

Dual extrusion is far from perfect. It's hardly tested, so I wouldn't recommend using that in your first attemt to add a machine.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
